I have always welcomed Layaways and I am positive that many of my dolls and even doll houses would not be in the new homes that they are if Layaway had not always been a possibility. But as the world has gotten more complicated, it has taken its toll on how much administrative time it takes to handle Layaways. Thus the new rules below (in effect as of Oct 6, 2016).

Layaways are best by phone, fax, email or mail, but you can also specify Layaway right on your online order. If you do the latter, the initial 20% deposit will be charged to the credit card you supply or the first month's payment if greater than 20%.

No layaways will be set up with payments less than $35 (too much admin time for low payments). This might mean your length of layaway will need to be shorter to arrive at payments that are at least $35.

Payment terms and final date for delivery are up to 6 months for any layaways that include sale items or are $300 or less and up to 12 months for layaways on orders over $300 (and which do not have any sale prices). You must commit to regular monthly payments, which are best by scheduled credit card method, but payments by check or Paypal are also acceptable.

Please note that due to limited administrative help, ALL layaway payments will be processed on the 3rd Thursday of each month. That is the only time I will have my helper here to do this job for me.

Cancelling or failure to make timely payments without consultation* will result
in forfeiture of all payments and deposits are always non-refundable.

*If difficulties arise, timely discussion is always received cordially and
usually a new plan can be worked out.
